Gliding, a feature previously limited to the new areas introduced in the Heart of Thorns expansion, is now enabled in Guild Wars 2’s original base game areas. The Winter 2016 update makes gliding possible for owners of the Heart of Thorns content throughout the world map, except in player versus player areas and instanced dungeons. The patch brings a host of balance fixes and user interface enhancements as well, but the most important change is that players can now stretch their wings and wobble clumsily from the highest point in Lion’s Arch to eventually lawn dart straight into the ground if they so wish thanks to the update. Fly! Be free!
